The title should be in bold font and no longer than 12 words. The names of the authors (full name and surname) should be written in ITALIC CAPITALS and the name of the presenting author should be followed by an asterisk (*).

Aim(s): should be clearly stated.

Methods: should indicate where, when and among whom your data were gathered and give details of sample selection (if applicable), randomisation and why the sample can or cannot be seen as representative of the population studied.

For p-values, an italic font should be used for the letter p e.g. p<0.05. Decimals should be separated from whole numbers with a dot (e.g. 30.8) and thousands with a comma (e.g. 1,000). Do not include a space between the percentage sign (%) and the number preceding it (i.e. 22% is correct but 22 % is incorrect). Always include numbers as well as percentages. In general, other than for p values do not present any data to more than one decimal place e.g. 13.1% and not 13.123%
The abstract must be no longer than 300 words/26 lines and be written in one paragraph, without any indents to the left of the page.
